First pictures of Apollo landing sites revealed

Whatever happened to all those priceless artifacts on the moon's surface, left behind by the six Apollo missions back in the late '60s and early '70s? Well, the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter just sent back shots of some of the landing sites, showing tiny pieces of evidence that humans indeed walked on the moon, beginning with Apollo 11 almost 40 years ago.

Take a look at the gallery for closer shots of four of the sites, which we wish could reveal even more. Let's hope better pics are on the way. However, on one of them you can see an astronaut footpath. Take that, you crackpots who don't believe people never walked on the moon.
